Cambridge Architecture Practice
Any building work is a major investment and it’s important that you can be confident you are getting the very best in service and professionalism. We understand the importance of such investment and your requirement of working to often, tight timescales.
The most important person in the design process is you, the client. Our passion is working with you to design buildings that work for you. Buildings that are elegant, yet cost effective and functional.
We are dedicated to offering unparalleled design and support through every stage of our customer’s experience and take great pride in our working relationship, from start through to finish and beyond.
Throughout the design process, you can expect an unrivaled, attentive and personal service, no matter whether it’s a small domestic extension or a new build project.
We specialise solely in residential architecture and always deliver a prompt and flexible service, from a simple refurbishment, house extension, barn or loft conversion to new build home.
When you make a free, no-obligation appointment with us, we will visit your home to discuss your project and ideas in depth. We’ll offer recommendations for designs that will complement your home and tastes and offer you guidance, but always leave the final choice up to you.
This visit is always followed up with a detailed fixed price quotation with no hidden extras. Our architectural services are transparent, extremely flexible and reliable.
From initial contact, to free consultation, I will guide you through the process which includes a full survey, a comprehensive drawing package, planning applications, building regulations and any required specialist reports you may need. At DMD&A we can also provide our own in-house building team ensuring your build is completed to schedule, is project managed by your architect and you never need to worry about employing cowboy builders.
Our aim is to take any hassle away from you. We will complete all necessary Planning Application forms and carry out any required negotiations with the planning authority on your behalf. Even when the application is submitted, we liaise with the Local Authority to keep you updated and informed, right up until a decision notice is issued. We have a strong knowledge of the planning process and can advise on Permitted Development and will always inform you of the chances of planning success.
Having obtained planning permission, most projects require a Building Regulation Application to be assembled and submitted to your Local Authority, addressing how the design meets current regulations and other technical requirements. Our unrivaled comprehensive service ensures your project will enjoy a seamless progression from Planning Approval, through to a Building Regulation approval, enabling your builder to commence work on site. Construction drawings from DMD&A are highly detailed and every project is treated individually. We don’t copy and paste typical details and sections, we draw your home ensuring accurate drawings which will ensure a successful build to budget.
We keep up to date with all the latest changes in legislation and building product innovation, and are able to offer you sound advice on the best ways to meet increasingly challenging regulatory requirements. When the application is assembled and submitted, we again act as your agent, liaising with Building Control to ensure the application progresses smoothly.
